Pediatric Issues

Children have challenges that are genetic, congenital, developmental, injury-related, and habitual. The spectrum is broad, and the transition from one subject to the next is quick. As a result, a proper diagnosis and a multidisciplinary approach are frequently required to ensure that the child's natural developmental potential is restored.

Our ITM enables us to optimize each child's health, well-being, and capacities. We may undertake deep regenerative therapy with youngsters using techniques such as Osteopathy and DNS.

Our ITM promotes organ function, regulates energy flow, improves brain function, and calms the child, among other health benefits.

Our priority is to ensure that the child becomes calm, lively, and develops in accordance with the developmental milestones, in addition to recovering from the previously mentioned obstacles

These children where there is delay reaching language, thinking, and social or motor skills milestones. Developmental delay may be caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, complications during pregnancy, and premature birth. Using our integrated treatment model, we plan our work depending on the type of delay. An extensive range of work is done over a period using Osteopathy, Occupational therapy, etc. The objective is always to ensure independence and confidence for the child.

Spine Bifida is a birth defect in which there is incomplete closing of the spine and the membranes around the spinal cord during early development in pregnancy. As a result, the child is born with a part of the spinal cord exposed on the back. Depending upon the symptoms presented we use our Integrated treatment model to enhance mobility and optimum functionality. Treatment goals depend on the child’s condition and could vary from maintenance of basic health to rehabilitation of activities.

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of muscle diseases that results in increasing weakening and breakdown of skeletal muscles over time. The disorders differ in a degree where the amount of weakness, speed of deterioration, and other symptoms vary causing problems with walking, swallowing, and muscle coordination. We focus on the maintenance of the health of our patients as recovery or reversal is not possible. We work to restore the functionality and maintain independence for our patients.

Dystonia is a movement disorder in which a person's muscles contract uncontrollably. The contraction causes the affected body part to twist involuntarily, resulting in repetitive movements or abnormal postures. Dystonia may be inherited, acquired, or idiopathic (no known cause). An extensive range of work is done over a period using Osteopathy, Occupational therapy, etc. The objective is always to ensure independence and confidence for the child.

A wry neck or torticollis is a painfully twisted and tilted neck. The top of the head generally tilts to one side while the chin tilts to the other side. The infant finds difficulty in turning the head to the opposite side. This condition can be congenital (present at birth) or acquired. At EEZ align we use an integrated treatment model to restore the normal range of motion of the cervical spine. Gradually, we use gentle stretches of the neck, traction, and positioning to deepen the work. Following this, an extensive range of work is done to ensure independence and confidence for the child.

Childhood asthma is the same lung disease adults get, but kids often have different symptoms. Doctors also call this pediatric asthma. If the child has asthma, their lungs and airways can easily get inflamed when they have a cold or are around things like pollen. Common symptoms are fast breathing, working hard to breathe, panting with normal activities like playing, and persistent cough. With an integrated treatment model, the goal is to improve the quality of breathing by working on the diaphragm and rib cage. With regular chiropractic alignment and breathing exercises, the rate of remission goes down, and children are able to recover.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. This is a neurological disorder that impacts the parts of the brain that help us plan, focus on, and execute tasks. Depending on the degree of challenges faced, we plan our treatment intensity. We use an integrated treatment model to incorporate the right interventions. An extensive range of work is done over a period using Osteopathy, Occupational therapy, etc. We have found osteopathy to be amazingly effective in ADHD. In our experience, this is 100% recoverable/controllable over time.

Kids with a leg length discrepancy have legs that are different lengths. This happens because the thigh bone (femur), shinbones (tibia or fibula), or both are shorter in one leg. Often as babies/children grow and start standing or walking or running, their parents will notice a difference. We use our integrated treatment model to work on the child’s structural and postural issues. Where pelvis and muscle corrections can yield results, we focus on those. And in the cases where the child needs an external foot raise, we work on that prescription and later adjustment to ensure independence and confidence for the child.

Also called Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common type of arthritis in kids and teens. It typically causes joint pain and inflammation in the hands, knees, ankles, elbows, and/or wrists. We use our integrated treatment model to manage the core and peripheral issues that the child is experiencing. The most important objective with a child is to prevent further deterioration and get the child to resume regular and structured daily activities. Building strength, control, and flexibility follows, through the next few stages. We are constantly focused on the total rehabilitation of the child and the maintenance of complete health.

Colic causes frequent, prolonged, and intense crying or fussiness in a healthy infant. It may be due to digestive problems; some colicky babies also have gas, as they swallow a lot of air while crying, breastfeeding, etc. It is important for these children to provide immediate relief and a reset to the motility of the stomach. Some action is also required to improve the motility of the Liver, Intestine, Colon, etc. of the child. We achieve these results through our integrated treatment model with a variety of processes including Manual therapy (osteopathy). With treatment, this condition subsides and only in some cases reoccurs.

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a condition where the "ball and socket" joint of the hip does not properly form in babies and young children. It's sometimes called congenital hip dislocation or hip dysplasia. This cause the child to have little to major discomfort and disability in weight-bearing. Hence, crawling, walking, standing, etc. can become painful and not a preferred activity by such children. This further causes developmental issues. We use our integrated treatment model to bring stability to the bilateral hip joints, using a variety of techniques. The goal is to help the child develop mobility, proper positioning of the joints, and strength. Such children can have a full recovery. Only in some rare cases, surgery is still required.
